weekly rewind 10 21 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 10/15   10/21

The third week into October, and still no NBA season. Around this time of year, fans of basketball and sneakers (a rather large overlapping sample set) typically prepare for the opening of the NBA season, waiting to see what new sneakers are on court. Unfortunately, we don’t have that luxury this year, but NBA stars have done their best to keep fans happy, and Sneaker News has continued its non-stop reporting of the best shoes of the present and the future. Starting off with Jordan Brand, Sneaker News gave you a look at two colorways of the Jordan Son Of Mars, a purported sequel to the Air Jordan Spiz’ike. Other upcoming sneakers like the LeBron 9 co-designed by Miami-based artist Freegums also caught our attention. Nike SB debuted its November collection, but news of yet another delay on the Entourages put a damper on eager spirits. Celebrities were out and about once again, with Kanye, Wale, Fabolous, and Entourage’s Turtle being spotted with some sick kicks.

In Retro news, a new Black/Yellow Air Max NM caused a stir, leaving our readers to debate on a nickname for the upcoming shoe. Penny Hardaway showed off an all-white pair of Foamposite Ones, which aren’t likely to release. The Nike Air Force 1 was a popular topic, as we brought you an exclusive look at some 2012 releases as well as the N7 colorway. Dunks will be ‘Deconstructed’ as well, as we showed you a trio of the Nike Dunk High Deconstruct, following last week’s Air Force 1 Deconstruct news. In adidas news, the ’98 All-Star colorway of the Crazy 8 released, and adidas Originals collaborated with an icon of a passed generation (The Muppets) and separately with a pop sensation of the current (Korea’s 2NE1). In sneaker events, Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand teamed up on a ‘takeover’ of NYC, with the FlightLab159 exhibit, a special event on one of NYC’s piers, and the debut of the ‘Post-Up’ iPhone app. Other notable events took place in Chicago, where D-Rose and adidas unveiled the adiZero Rose 2, and in Philly, where Sneaker Pimps made its latest stop. We’ve got plenty more from this week, so check out the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind and get caught up!

If you’re looking for that age-old grail – that one shoe you had when you were a kid that you won’t stop until you get in your hands again, eBay is probably your best bet. Despite all the Retro sneakers that have released over the years, for most brands, the majority of the entire 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s catalogs have remained untouched. Some of the gems that have surfaced from one single seller are the James Worthy New Balance P700s, the turf-ready Nike Land Shark along with a grip of Nike Trainers and Runners, a pair of the Asics Gel Intensity, Ewing Rogues, and a ton more from various brands. Check out some of the bright spots from this vintage treasure trove and visit all these live auctions from rosker on eBay. Thanks to SF for the heads up.

air jordan 8.0 royal red rr summary Air Jordan 8.0   Varsity Red + Varsity Royal | Release Reminder

Earlier this month, Jordan Brand finally released the Air Jordan 8.0 – an entirely re-tooled version of the Air Jordan VIII. Boasting a lighter package, Flywire cables, and a seam-less and breathable upper, the Air Jordan 8.0 featured the necessary upgrades to perfectly envision the contemporary Air Jordan VIII. Releasing tomorrow are two more team-based colorways of White/Varsity Red and White/Varsity Royal; a third ‘University Blue’ version was also set for a release on the 22nd, but were actually released alongside the ‘Playoffs’ and ‘Georgetown’ colorways on October 8th. Be sure to check out your local Jordan Brand accounts for these two new releases, but if you want to make it easier, cop a pair now for under retail from shoejocky on eBay.

Nike Air Max JR – ‘White Sox’ + ‘Cincinnati Reds’ | Release Reminder

October 21st, 2011 by | 8 comments

nike air max jr white sox reds release reminder Nike Air Max JR   White Sox + Cincinnati Reds | Release Reminder

When we associate a superstar player with one team, seeing said star wear another jersey is a rather tough pill to swallow. Griffey in a White Sox uni, Patrick Ewing in a Sonics/Magic jersey, heck, even MJ in Wizards Blue/Gold was a bit funky. Ken Griffey Jr. will always be tied to White/Teal Mariners colors, and although he poetically ended his career by returning to Seattle, we can’t overlook his years as a Cincinnati Red and his short span with the Southside White Sox. Just yesterday, Sneaker News gave you notice about the Cincinnati Reds Air Max JR releasing in November, but it looks like some retailers, like MrRSports, will drop them early tomorrow, alongside the ‘White Sox’ edition (which will drop on Nikestore). Still not sure which one you like better? Check out the detailed shots below and let us know your pick, and be sure to snag one of the two (or both) tomorrow at Nike Sportswear retailers or on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Miami Nights’ – Arriving @ Retailers

October 21st, 2011 by | 38 comments

nike lebron 9 miami nights mil shoes 04 Nike LeBron 9 Miami Nights   Arriving @ Retailers

Nike LeBron 9 designer Jason Petrie recently confirmed this Cool Grey/Cherry colorway of the LeBron 9 to be this year’s high-energy ‘Miami Nights’ installment. These are clearly a lot more subtle than the LeBron 8 V/2 Low ‘Miami Nights’, but convey the same message; Miami Nights are about parties. The Dark Grey/Black combo is a clear signature of night-time, which the Cherry and Purple point to the dazzling night-club colors (all you need is a bottle of your favorite spirits to get the night started). The ‘Miami Nights’ is currently set for a release on November 4th, but some LeBron accounts like Millenium Shoes has their stock in early, so check out these new shots of this upcoming release below and let us know if you like this subtler ‘Miami Nights’ over the previous version.

Nike iD allows sneakerheads to implement their favorite colorways onto their favorite sneakers. The Bespoke experience at 21 Mercer, with its wider array of colors and eclectic variety of materials, allows sneakerheads to go a lot further with their inspirations. Matthew Lauretti, a 21-year-old who recently relocated to New York from Italy, used his regional transition as the muse for his creation, utilizing NY-specific colorways, like the Blue/Orange combination, with traveler lizard leather in a rich blue coast blue. On the lace-dubrae is ‘New York’ engraved in a luxurious font, with the heel-tab providing an additional message with ‘New Life’. Check out the extra angles of Lauretti’s Bespoke and let us know what you think of this inspired design.

asics gel lyte iii spring summer 2012 Asics Gel Lyte III   Spring/Summer 2012 Releases

Much of the Asics retro catalog has been out of the reach of American sneaker heads for a while now. Historically commanding much more attention across the pond, their line of Gel’s and the like will thankfully see an increased presence in the US come 2012. Of course that means we’ll be seeing plenty of the classic split-tongue Asics Gel Lyte III. We’ve got a quick preview of two pairs set for the Spring/Summer 2012 season that go hand in hand, coming in alternating black and white colorways. Along with the leather uppers are some nice canvas sections, a material that you don’t see too often on the Gel Lyte III. Get the full look at both pairs after the jump and stick with us for release info on these come next year. via Suede&Mesh
